After 2 blog posts that got lot’s of reaction, I wanted to re-post a very popular post about this delicate subject of racism, preferences, prejudice….
Read below and comment!
What is Adam4Adam? To an outsider the site may look like nothing more than a place for gay men to find other gay men to play, but once you are a member the site can become much more.
Over time, fuck buddies often become long lasting friends, long distance friendships can be made and maintained as we cruise profiles and chat with people in far-away places, and life partners can be found as we get to know one another in a more personal way. But for many, especially when first joining the site, membership is about marketing yourself as a sexual object to find a match.
Marketing yourself and seeking others based on how they advertise themselves takes skill and honestly the more precise and accurately you describe who you are, your physical characteristics and what you are looking for in another person the better your chances of finding your match and finding him quickly.
We all have preferences in men, tall, dark, and handsome – short, stout, and average, when it comes to what turns us on we are all very individual.

Some of you may have heard about the guy in North Carolina that was beaten and set on fire in a hotel last Saturday night after leaving a club with a guy. The Advocate and the Q Notes has been posting about it. His name was Stephen White and I remember seeing him at the clubs through out the years. I never met him or knew him personally.
I was shocked to learn of the attack on Tuesday when my partner texted me about it. I had heard about the fire at the hotel on the news over the weekend but never put two and two together.
Hey guys, I thought about doing this once again so that we get to know each other a little bit more. I saw that many of you are regulars on the blog, but I don’t know all of you yet. It could also be nice if some of you guys could find a date or a match through this post
So maybe you could start by mentioning your A4A profile name, your age, where you live, what is your work, if you have kids and other personal things. Then if you are single or not, if you are gay, bi or curious and what you are looking for on A4A. Feel free to talk about your goal in life and if you have plans for the next few years etc.
You may have noticed that after you log in you have a choice to check out our new design.
Those of you who’ve been trying it out and have already sent us feedback: Thank you!!
We’ve been making some fixes and tweaks already and next week you’ll see some bigger changes based on what you’ve been telling us. We know that you’re passionate about our site and so are we. Thats why we wanted to offer you a preview of the new design so you could check it out. We’re a very small team who are committed to building the best free service possible for you and people like you, so you can meet guys and do your thing. As often as you’d like.
Here’s a quick mini-FAQ about the changes:
Why are you doing this to the site?
We have a lot of cool plans for the the future and we couldn’t make that happen with what we had in place. Most of what changed happened under the covers. We hadn’t given the site a visual update in a very long time and we wanted something fresh and exciting that would let us continue to evolve and improve.
Is this so you can start charging for memberships?
No. Our goal has always been to provide the best multi-platform gay experience for free. That doesn’t mean that we won’t be adding some premium/supporter-only features but we won’t be placing limits on what a free member can do. You can click here to learn more about Premium access.
I love the new design, where can I send you fan mail?
Cool! send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I hate the new design, it looks stupid and doesn’t work!
Sorry you’re upset. Send an email to email@example.com and tell me what didn’t work for you or why you didn’t like it.
Every email will be read and while we may not have time to respond to every one we, as a team, will be paying attention to what you’re saying.
That’s cool but how do I switch it back to the old version?
Go to Mailbox -> Alert Settings and uncheck “Use new version of the site” and click Update Settings.
Hey guys, we are pleased to present a NEW version of Adam4Adam. We’ve made many improvements to offer you a better experience. We hope with time you will get accustomed to the updated look and improvements. Here are some things you have to keep in mind with the new version of the website:
1. Everything is where it was: all the buttons and sections are at the same place.
2. The account home page now has a preview of your profile and you can edit/upload pics from the buttons there.
3. Blocking now makes the blocked person INVISIBLE!!! (yayyyyy!!!)
4. There are hundreds of small fixes/improvements that you won’t noticed but you will surely enjoy them as you go through the website.
5. The iOS app was updated and went live yesterday, it also has hundreds of fixes and is now iOS 8 compatible.
6. There’s a native Android app coming very soon, we are just waiting for Google’s OK!
If you want to leave your feedback, or if you want to report a problem, on the website or the iOS app, send us a email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will read ALL of them. We won’t necessarily reply though, so don’t send another email if you don’t get an answer.
Try out the new version of the website in “My Account” section and let me know here in the comment section below how you like it!
To switch back to the old version, you can go to Mailbox Alerts and uncheck “Use new version of the site” and click “update settings”.
*****Guys, ALL the comments that say stuff like ” you fucking morons why did you change it ?” will be deleted. I don’t need to see this! Suggestions, tips, comments are welcome but for god sake, stay polite! Also the new version has been up for 24h, so we are making improvements when we receive a complaint or a report. Be patient!
